Researchers have divided nursing home residents into long-stayers and short-stayers. While long-stayers rarely return home, they do not necessarily stay long in one institution.

Although many studies have examined the impact of relocation on nursing home residents, few studies have analyzed reasons for this nomadism. A study of one nursing home was conducted to analyze reasons for nursing home transfers and to distinguish three types ...

[texts]ERIC ED318681: What Is Quality of Life? - ERIC
Is the concept of "quality of life" potentially an important one for public policy analysis, or must it remain forever vague and controversial, resisting clear definition and scientific measurement?
